Kerrian Bard Fournier Teaser 00:00

Is our consultants and coaches have very much been on the other side of these. There's just an immediate empathy and understanding of where the person is.

To be frank from a place of non-judgment, a lot of times you know it's not the optimal situation that we're brought in and to come in with clarity, compassion and some constructive feedback and new perspectives and new tools, I think is really what's helped differentiate ourselves.

Intro 00:24

Hello. Hello. Hello. This is Gresh from the IAMCEO podcast and I appreciate you listening to this episode. If you've been listening this year you know that we hit 1600 episodes at the beginning of this year. We're doing something a little bit different where we're repurposing our favorite episodes around certain categories, topics, Or as I like to call them business pillars that we think are going to be extremely impactful for CEOs, entrepreneurs and business owners, or what I like to call CB nation architects who are looking to level up their organizations.

This month, we are focused on innovation, disruption, women entrepreneurship, DEI, the gig economy, remote economy, even the cannabis industry. Think about these industries and these disruptive technologies that really sometimes aren't as disruptive, but there are people that are just paying attention to what the market needs and they're providing that. So really think about the things that are quote and quote outside of the norm, but really help entrepreneurship to grow and fully develop.

So what I want you to do is sit back and enjoy this special episode of the IAMCEO podcast.
